Nexus 4 shortage announced
It seems that the handset’s popularity caught the electronics firm on the hop, forcing the head of LG in the UK to respond. Andy Coughlin said: “We are working closely with Google to ensure that those who wish to purchase a handset are able to do so.”
The LG Nexus 4 is one of a range of Google Nexus phones commissioned by the search engine company; however it seems that the LG version has taken most of the sales of the Android smartphone.
It costs £239, which some experts thought would be a hard sell given the current economic climate; however, the phone was given a fantastic review when it was launched, which may be the reason behind its popularity.
Mr. Coughlin added: “As with any sales process, LG supplies product quantities against partners’/customers’ forecasts. Demand via the Play Store has been very high in this instance.”
Although on the surface this shortage could be a seen as great news, in reality -with the run up to Christmas – it could end up being a poisoned chalice.
In other news, if you are thinking of getting a tablet and want it on 4G then EE is offering the iPad Mini at £25.99 per month. While this is good news for some, many experts believe that the cost is high. It may be better to buy the device outright and look for a deal afterwards.
